One of the most important things for me is to be organized. I am always on time and I can make plans for a whole month, or even year. Sometimes, I can do two or more things at the same time, to finish all the work I have.

I have to be polite and know how to speak to different people who come to the office. I am also nice to anyone who calls. I can answer up to a hundred calls every day.

I must know a lot about computers, printers, and other devices. I use them every day. I can even fix a printer myself!

Sometimes, I also have to cook. My boss says I can make some of the best coffees and sandwiches she’s ever eaten. However, I don’t like it very much. I prefer my other work to cooking.
